The story behind our name: "BP" stands for Brooklynn Paige. Brooklynn is our cousin's little girl who, at 15 months old, was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis. This is caused by either a rare auto-immune disorder where her immune system is confused and essentially attacks itself, leaving lesions of swelling throughout her spinal cord or direct attack to the spinal cord from the virus itself. She was paralyzed from the neck down and her body became like a new born baby at 15 months old. Kylie quit her job and moved into our cousin's home to help take care of Brooklynn's siblings while the parents were at the hospital with Brooklynn. The "Warriors" of our name comes from the Facebook page that Brooklynn's mom started for her called "Brooklynn's Warriors".
What's the "why" behind BP Warriors? As Kylie puts it, "I've always been close to my cousin's family and have a deep connection with Brooklynn. Through the years, I have watched Brooklynn and her family fight for her to receive the help she needs. I've seen the immeasurable benefits that come when she gets the therapy and medical care she needs to live each day. And that's why we started BP Warriors."
My nephew and niece! I love getting to see them almost daily since Eryn and I became business partners.

Hey I'm Kylie! I was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. I'm the oldest of six children, so I guess you could say that nurturing has always been a part of my life! I have a love for people and cultures, which led me to teach English to children in Ukraine. After returning to the States, I became a nanny and absolutely loved it. Later, I lived in South Carolina for 18 months as a missionary for my church, and then lived in Utah to attend business school.
Starting BP Warriors has been joyous and fulfilling. Naming the company in honor of Brooklyn Paige was the obvious choice for us because I have seen first-hand how the proper therapy, love, and attention has blessed her life and helped her grow. I want to help other children in that same way. It's my dream to create a space where children, parents, and employees feel loved, supported, and valued. I hope you'll stop by so we can get to know each other more and help your little warrior succeed.
Loving where you live! I'm big into DIY projects and have done a lot of work to our house to make it our home. It's been a blast!

Hi, I'm Eryn! I am a mom of two sweet kids, one boy and one girl. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and taught 3rd grade until I had my second baby. Before teaching, I worked at an after school program working with students in grades K-6 for many years. I have worked with kids for a long time and I love it, so I knew that starting this clinic was my next step! A few fun facts about me are that I love Italian food and homemade ice cream. I am also a crime junkie! I listen to a lot of crime podcasts and books. I am also big into DIY/home improvement projects. I have done feature walls, built cabinets, painted our home interior from top to bottom, built shelves, and much more! I think that spending each day where you love and doing what you love are so important! That's why I hope to make BP Warriors a place where you and your little one can be successful and happy.
